How well can the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G run games
31 Oct 2019 - Graphics card reviewed

The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G is a high performing piece of gaming hardware, still confidently featuring in PC gamer computers. GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G is capable of DirectX 12 gaming requirements.

Game performance for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G where we look at the bigger games played in 2019. Looking closely at the graphics card frame rate performance on Ultra graphics settings at 1080p, 1440p and 4K screen resolutions. When considering how well this graphics card can run the 1000 most demanding games available today it can best 663 of the games’ recommended graphics requirements.

Now onto the frame rates achieved at 1080p. We predict that Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order will get 30 FPS with the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G, Call of Duty: Modern Warfare getting 43 FPS and The Outer Worlds getting 46 frames per second. All run on Ultra at 1920x1080 screen res.

Increasing resolution to 1440p is something a number of PC gamers are doing today. We tested the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G at 1440p and researched how Star Wars: Jedi - Fallen Order might perform on it leading us to predict a weak set of FPS results. These were, Low: 60 FPS, Medium: 48 FPS, High: 32 FPS and Ultra: 23 FPS. We then checked out Call of Duty: Modern Warfare which had a set of graphics results as followed, L: 86FPS, M: 67FPS, H: 45FPS, U: 32FPS. And another popular game was The Outer Worlds that returned L: 93FPS, M: 73FPS, H: 49FPS, U: 35FPS at 1440p. 1440p GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G PC gaming is a suitable graphics card for this larger screen res. In some cases we might expect some graphics option tweaks down from Ultra to High to help improve FPS stability when gaming at 1440p.

How many years will the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G graphics card play newly released games and how long until you should consider upgrading the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G in your PC? There is still 2 years of top end gaming left in this GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G

Whats a good PC graphics upgrade for the GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G? A good upgrade choice for this graphics card today would be the 16 Series GeForce GTX 1660 Super 6GB. For comparison of the 1000 most demanding games around today this suggested upgrade is 34% better and can meet 901 of their recommended requirements. Alternatively if you are thinking of upgrading this graphics card then we would currently suggest the R-500 Series Radeon RX Vega 56 8GB. This PC hardware upgrade performs 44% better and can run 962 of today’s 1000 most demanding PC games.

GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G Game Requirement Analysis

Overview
GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G is currently the entry level MSI Nvidia GTX 1000 performance graphics card, based on the Pascal Architecture. It comes with locked memory of 3GB instead of the full 6GB.


Architecture
It equips a GPU Codenamed P106-300-A1 which is a first gen Pascal GPU and has 9 SM activated, offering 1152 Shader Processing Units (the GTX 1060 6GB version offers 1280 SPU), 72 TMUs and 48 ROPs.


GPU
The central unit runs at 1544MHz and goes up to 1759MHz, when Boost mode is activated.


Memory
The GPU accesses a 3GB frame buffer of GDDR5, through a 192-bit memory interface, while the Memory Clock Operates at 2002MHz.


Power Consumption
With a rated board TDP of 120W, it requires at least a 400W PSU with one available 6-pin connector.


Performance
The GeForce GTX 1060 MSI Armor OCV1 3G is capable of playing most modern game system requirements at high graphics settings. The 3GB version is normally around 5% worse than the GTX 1060 6GB full fat version in terms of sheer processing power. But its the 3GB memory reduction that will hamper the high quality game textures this card can deliver, making it less future proof, as more games are released that require GPU memory.
We expect this GPU to return around 51+ FPS at high graphics setting on most modern games @ 1080p screen resolution.
